Cheryl lands herself in hot water with “irresponsible” comments

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is not having the best week of her career so far after being accused of miming on Sunday’s X Factor and blasting a follower on Instagram yesterday.

Now, the singer has angered mental health sufferers and charities after comments she made during Lola’s performance last weekend.

Lola performed Crazy by Gnarls Barkley and when Simon asked where the Halloween aspect was in the set, Cheryl replied: “It was crazy, we had a theme. If you didn’t notice there were people in straitjackets.”

Now, mental health organisation, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness’ Time to Change have blasted Cheryl’s words, as spokesperson Kate Nightingale told The Daily Mirror: “The X Factor is watched by millions and implying that mental health problems are scary it’s irresponsibly fuelling damaging myths and misconception.”

Twitter users also condemned Cheryl, with many complaining that her words are offensive and damaging to those suffering from mental health issues:

As of yet, Cheryl hasn't addressed the controversial situation but it may be a good idea…
